I've been working to learn about BP for decades and br oke down about 20 yrs ago and started taking 2 BP meds, one old class and one not old and not new. There was a time that I kept a journal of BP readings, daily...What I ate, what emotions etc. I went thru 2 machines. Now, I know that BP can change every minute, every second, w hich foods one has eaten and one's emotions: meditation, loud talking, moving around, dreaming, and more. MOST never think these and probably keep looking for that engraved 120/80 from the medical industry.... I just had a telemed l5 minutes with doctor, as to stay with I have to be there now and then, or in contact as I was today. They charge Medicare for the 15 minutes. This doc is pushing for me to come in for BP reading and heart check, I said I am fine. She asked me if I have breathing issues, I said NO as I don't., I have no Issues. So now she's talking about an eventual nurse to my home to check these 2. I know my BP reading goes up when a doc gets involved, probably everyone does, and they know this. This too is Medicare paid. I tell her I'm fine except I vent now and then about my body damage from 2010 hip replacement. Just Venting and sharing maybe some info.
